Contemporary Shine

Glass mixes with light colored metallic decor for elegance and sheen, while the metals themselves can be chosen based on your specific design preferences. Gold, silver and bronze finishes all create their own unique look. Add these metals in functional hardware throughout your home, and then add to the style with furniture, artwork and accent pieces that make a beautiful statement. The beauty of our Alustra collection of window shades will fit perfectly in your contemporary shine design scheme. The fabrics feature metallic finishes for a glint of sparkle with an upscale look.


Modern Industrial

Distressed wood and rough cut materials, like brick and stone, add to the overall appearance of an industrial space. The key to creating this look, without making it too harsh, is the intentional choices of color and fabric. Following the lead of industrial metallic decor, matte finishes of fabrics work best, like burlap, canvas and materials of other natural elements. Colors can be bold to make a statement, or subtle to soften the space. Furniture and accent pieces will incorporate well into this interior design, offering intrigue and mystery. Window shades can be used to bring in the natural light with features like top down, bottom up and PowerView motorization, letting you adjust the light for the perfect atmosphere.
